Brake System Design Calculation for Light Military Tracked Vehicle 2012-01-1896

Braking system is one of the most important system in the vehicle. In this paper, a general methodology for the design of braking system for a light military tracked vehicle is discussed in detail. It may be considered as a guide for predicting the values of various braking terms (such as brake force, brake torque, system pressure required, pedal force etc.) for the given inputs. The effects on these braking terms due to the variation of the inputs are also analyzed. A complete study of different types of brake actuation system has been done so that the appropriate one can be selected. A methology has been derived for braking system design for tracked vehicle and a program is written for the same.
